Use builtin recipe with ebook-convert


calibre is a brilliant system, I'm a noob and it just took me a good hour to come to belows conclusion, so I wanted to share it as I didn't find a direct reference to that problem in the forum.

How to use a builtin recipe with the command line - here you go:

List all builtin recipes (that's an easy one and is also document in the manual/forum):

ebook-convert --list-recipes

If you want to use one of the recipes (e.g. The Economist) you go:

ebook-convert "The Economist".recipe /home/ds/economist.epub
